So we did a Secret Santa thing at Lush. We drew names in December, and were supposed to exchange the gifts at the holiday dinner in January. I had to work that night, so I left the gift for my Secret Santa in the back room so someone could take it to the party. I had never worked with the person whose name I drew (so awkward, I knew nothing about her at all!) so I bought a bunch of candy/snacks from the local Japanese store and hoped for the best. I assume she got it, because the next time I was a the store the gift was gone.
But today I just realized that I never got a gift! It makes me wonder:
- Did the person who drew my name drop the ball?
- Was my name not included in the original drawing? (Except it must have been, because there was an even number of little slips of paper.)
- Did someone get me a gift, but since I was not at the party they took it back home with them?
- Did someone get me a gift, and leave it at the store, and someone else took it home? Or, did it get thrown away because I didn't pick it up?
I hope my gift made it to its recipient OK. I never got a thank you from her, so I can only assume it made it into her hands because it wasn't at the store the next time I worked. (If the candies got thrown out in some weird cleaning binge, that'd be irritating. I really didn't have the money to spend on Lush morale-boosting projects.)
Well, whatever. That's waaaaaaaaaay back in the past now. Best to leave it there.
(But seriously, what a random thing to pop into my head.)
